ROTC buildings vandalized at two NC colleges

Posted by: ST on April 27, 2006 at 10:21 am

Via the Raleigh News and Observer:

Vandals staged attacks early Wednesday on the buildings used by the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps at N.C. State University and UNC-Chapel Hill, echoing similar assaults on three Triangle recruiting stations last month.

As before, vandals sprayed anti-war slogans and profanity, splashed red paint and claimed responsibility with a mass e-mail message to area media outlets.

Lt. Col. Carol Ann Redfield of the Army ROTC program at N.C. State was caught off guard. “This is the first time I know of that anything like this has happened here,” she said. “I certainly appreciate that people have different opinions, and they should be able to express them, but I have a problem when they damage property.”

The e-mail, from someone calling himself “celest ialbeing” said, “Stop these recruitment centers that target poor people and people of color to fight to maintain the power structure that (literally and figuratively) imprisons us daily.”

The vandals sprayed slogans at the base of an entrance to Reynolds Coliseum, which holds the Department of Military Science, and tossed paint onto an ROTC sign above the entrance.

[…]

At UNC, the vandals used spray paint for slogans but chose a 5-gallon bucket of water-soluble red paint to splash the landing, columns and steps. A cleanup crew blasted it off with a pressure washer.

“Thank goodness they used water-based paint,” said Angelo Baldwin, a crew member. The slogans — including “we won’t fight your wars!” — also were removed quickly, but the doors must be repainted.

At N.C. State, the slogan “Army ROTC trains murderers resist acts of war” was sprayed in a place all but invisible to passers-by. The vandals’ arsenal also included another puzzling choice: Christmas tree ornaments, which were apparently tossed at the ROTC sign.

Blackfive has photos from the UNC-Chapel Hill anti-war vandalism.

Sounds like these creeps who did this would get along with the UC Santa Cruz anti-war crowd just fine.

Semi-related: Michelle Malkin has info on the lyrical rantings of popular anti-war moonbat Neil Young. Love the tin-foil hat pic ;)

      Gee, anyone know what steve’s been up to lately? The graffitti sounds EXACTLY like the things he says…:-?

    2. “The vandals’ arsenal also included another puzzling choice: Christmas tree ornaments, which were apparently tossed at the ROTC sign.”

      – Yes. I’m sure that theres a 98 year old lady in an attic in Farmdale Nebraska thats still not quite sure that the hard left is anti-Christmas, which is just a cover for anti-Christian/anti-Religion. Real stumper that. Uh huh. H’yep.

      – Bang **==

    3. - Please don’t feed the telephone poles Sev. The “peace” and quite is a blessing. *snort*

      – Bang **==

      Way to give the “enemy” a tip for next time….

      Sheesh.

      Why do liberals have this affinity to destruction of property of people they disagree with, they preach “Peace” yet they use violence against people they are in opposition to. This is what happens when the logical thought process is ignored and replaced by feelings. These kids that think they know the way the world should be at the all knowing age of 18 to 22 the rebirth of the hippie’s of the 60’s.
      :)>-

      As far as Neil Young he should go back to Canada and stay out of American politics another leftwing moon bat with a guitar. He won’t see any of my money that’s for sure.
      :o)

    6. - Because they’re all a bunch of “Hippy-crits”, with a capital “Marxist” Jim. Free speech for me, but not for thee. The “caring” party of hate and distruction.

      – Bang **==

    7. Andy says:

      But they support the troops? This is not free speech. This is not to be protected, tolerated, or in any way condoned. I hope they find who did it and enact the following punishments:

      1. Pay full cost of repairs, plus 10% to go toward the Freedom Alliance.
      2. Issue a public apology that lasts an entire day in the form of an information booth on the campus square.
      3. (A liberal’s favorite) Sensitivity training. heeheeheehee.
      4. Send their liberal butts to prison (preferably military) for destruction of government property.

      I still say pull all federal funding from places that tolerate this illegal action.

      Would people be more up in arms if this was against a Gay Club, or a Black Club? But because it is the military, it is alright for people to do these types of things. They will say it is their 1st amendment rights to vandalize and destroy property.

      Where have we heard THAT claim before?

      Personally I am getting sick of it.

      If there is a flood, or a natural disaster, who do you think they will scream to help them?

      The military is just fine when it suits a Liberals purpose, but if it goes against anything a liberal stands for – MILITARY GET OUT!!!

      Persoanlly I am getting fed up with this. Pull all military from states that support this type of actions and allow this to go on. No military will help or be stationed anywhere in those states. Close the bases there, move the military where they are honored and respected.

      Beginning to think that Amy Proctors had the right idea in her posting of throwing all the libs to the left of the country, then erecting a wall, and let the liberals and their ideas govern themselves…no police, no military, gay marriages all you want, all the privacy protections you want, all the illegal immigration you want…..ect. And then see which side survives the ideology, left or right.

      Left side of the country would probably look like ‘Escape from New York’ after having Liberals fully in charge with no challenge to their ideology.

      Bang,

      Free speech for me, but not for thee. That kind of says it all. And to give the 18-22 yr old kids credit. I am sure the silent majority of these college kids don’t agree with the left wing wackjobs.

      The succesful students are too busy getting an education to get involved in politics. It is underperforming students that are out there protesting and being heard. These loud kids are hoping to get a job with the dumocratic party slashing tires and don’t care about thier education.

    10. forest hunter says:

      Outstanding idea Andy! As soon as there broken arms, wrists and fingers heal, they can go scrub their vile Bravo Sierra off with their own toothbrush or maybe they can get started earlier, by using their dreadlocks.

    11. benning says:

      The Left is a child of Communism/Socialism. In those ‘philosophies’ truth is whatever takes the Movement forward. In that ‘philosophy’ any and all actions are permissable, indeed, laudable, if they move Communism/Socialism forward.

      That is why it was such a stupid thing for the West to try to negotiate with the Soviet Empire. By their very nature, the Soviets were incapable of upholding any agreement once it became inimicable to their aims. Thus, they could cheat on every treaty and agreement. And did. And our own MSM always gave them cover, as they do today with our home-grown leftists and terrorists.

      Thus, we find that it is always acceptable to burn an American Flag as a Free Speech act. Yet, it is never acceptable, indeed it is Racist, to burn a cross. Free Speech is only allowable if it supports the Movement.

      Do you see the merging of method and belief between Leftist and Islamist? Only the foundational beliefs are different. The actual practice is the same.

      Finding the senders of the email is easy. Will they be prosecuted? If so, will a jury find them guilty – as they should? If so, will we be surprised to see a suspended sentence? Hmmm?

      *sigh*:-<

      I am Shocked!!! Shocked I tell ya!!! The college student that did this, actually got all the spelling correct. =)) That is just shocking. Of course he didn’t have to spell a word over 4 letters, so actually how hard could it be. =))

      I think when they find this guy, they should strip his bottom bare and do what his Mommy and Daddy couldn’t. Beat him on the behind until he starts to cry like a little baby. Nothing teaches discipline like pain. Momma told me not to touch that hot oven, swatted my hand away when I persisted, let me touch it, and I howled like the damn fool I was, well for a 5 year old. But I never touch that hot oven again. LOL =)) – Lorica

    13. Tom TB says:

      Last I knew, the draft ended Jan. 27, 1973, so where does this “Hell No, We Won’t Go!” stuff come from? These protestors are violating the Civil Rights of students who want to volunteer for service in the military! Where is the A.C.L.U.?

    14. - There are a fair number of young colledge kids, that for all sorts of reasons, see even the remotest of possibilities of a draft as Armeggedon, and the left knows this, and plays shamlessly on their fears.

      – The Dem party does the same thing all the time, as wittnessed when a certain Dem Congressman, Charley Ruggle, introduced a faux “draft re-instatement bill” during the Presidential election runup. Its one of the Good Leader Marx’s favorite ploys; class welfare and playing on peoples fears.

      – I keep wondering how in the hell the Democraps were able to come to the conclusion that anyone with a working brain is going to vote for a party whose people and leaders think its good to use Communist tactics in our political arena. Amazing.

      – Bang **==

    15. The Monster says:

      Rangel, not ‘Ruggle’

    16. - Thanx TM – He pops up on FOX now and then, when the left needs a “fresh me up” screed or two, but for some reason I never get his name right….

      – Bang **==

      I gather the red stuff on the ground is what’s left of the perpetrators after the ROTC-built IED went off.

      “We train young men to drop fire on people. But their commanders won’t allow them to write “f–k” on their airplanes because it’s obscene!”

    19. Baklava says:

      Yep.

    20. - We train our young men and woman to drop fire on murdering thugs that fire mortors into market places crowded with women and children, regardless of whats painted on their planes.

      – Bang **==

    21. typical-hypocrasy says:

      …and accidentally kill civilians. quite a lot. but we don’t count them.

      they don’t matter. as long as we’re right.

      god bless ya, the more evidence your rulers are corrupt emerges the more venomous you nutty types seem to get.

      enjoy.

    22. Lorica says:

      As long as there has been man there has been war. No one ever lived in complete peace. I am thankful that there are men and women like those in our armed forces that are as talented and compassionate as they are. We have a great military, and the odd thing is if we were like any other country in this world, we would only want to use it to dominate the rest of the world. In the minds of the left we are damned if we do, and damned if we don’t. So your opinion on my rulers really doesn’t matter. GW was elected into office by the people, and the next Republican Conservative will be elected in to office. We are the oldest current democracy in the world and I find it completely odd that the rest of the world thinks it knows how to do it better than we. Most of our families left Europe cause we didn’t want to be ruled by elitist. Not a whole lot has changed today. Enjoy – Lorica

    23. Severian says:

      Jeez, we got another moonbat who learned everything they know about war from watching “Apocalypse Now.” :-@=))

    24. forest hunter says:

      So the resident moron has altered his mantra to typical idiot, I mean vilage idiot er, uh , make that typical hypocrasy, what ever that spelling is supposed to mean.

      One out, one in, Sev.

    25. “The guardians of the Great Marxist pumpkin, the TTP’s*, shall deflect and screech as a loud covering sound, reminiscent of Ghingus Khan, in a cowardly cover story of Dhimmitude and “caring”, while they live in mortal fear of the dreaded “draft” word, seared into their miniature minds.”

      Interesting:

      http://www.wjla.com/news/stories/0406/323145.html

      Students suspended from high school for their childish “anti-war” prank in front of the recruiting booth at a career fair. But then this is all typical for the Leftists, not only do they want nothing to do with the military, they just know they know what’s best for you and want to prevent you from having the option. Fascists in training…

    27. Lorica says:

      Damn Skippy Sev. Give them the opportunity to hold power over someone and they will grind you under the heel of their boot. So much compassion being expressed here in what is written on the Navy’s door. I show my friends the pics at Zombietime all the time. Some of these guys are lefties and they are simply shocked at those photos. I keep telling them, “are you sure you want to align with these people??” Usually the answer is no. LOL :) It makes me laugh. – Lorica

      http://www.yawr.org/resistance1

      The above site has put out the calling for a organized effort by college students and high school kids to protest the local military recruiter.
      Minneapolis Star Tribune quotes,Riva Garcia, 15, a freshman at Minneapolis South High School, told the crowd that she believes the war is racist and that the military is using dirty tactics to get minorities to enlist.

      “We, as working class, minority and immigrant youth, deserve equal access to education,” she said. “We don’t deserve to die for our country just because someone told us to. We deserve to be heard, and to be recognized as the future of this country.”

      She pretty much repeats what was written the yawr/resistance news flyer…

    29. Lorica says:

      God how these people are so deceived. In a nut shell she is saying “We have never done anything to ensure that our freedoms are going to be guaranteed. But we want a guarantee that we will have our freedoms”. Are we raising a generation of lazy idiots?? It certainly seems so. I thank God that so many excellent men and woman do join our military. I know, I know she is only 15, she has some years to grow up, and shrug off this stupidity. – Lorica

    30. - Unfortunately, some never do “grow-up”, but get transformed into the Marxist ideology, where avoidence of personal responsibility is to be lauded as a self-anointed “elitist” crown. You want to make a moonbat sweat, just mention the dreaded “D” word, “draft”. *snort*
